Synopsis

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER



SHORTLISTED FOR THE SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE



The original bestseller from the beloved author of UNDERLAND, LANDMARKS and THE LOST WORDS - Robert Macfarlane travels Britain's ancient paths and discovers the secrets of our beautiful, underappreciated landscape



'The Old Ways confirms Macfarlane's reputation as one of the most eloquent and observant of contemporary writers about nature' Scotland on Sunday



Following the tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast ancient network of routes criss-crossing the British Isles and beyond, Robert Macfarlane discovers a lost world - a landscape of the feet and the mind, of pilgrimage and ritual, of stories and ghosts; above all of the places and journeys which inspire and inhabit our imaginations.



'Sublime... It sets the imagination tingling, laying an irresistible trail for readers to follow' Sunday Times



'Read this and it will be impossible to take an unremarkable walk again' Metro



'He has a rare physical intelligence and affords total immersion in place, elements and the passage of time: wonderful' Antony Gormley
